i'll be picking up gears. i kinda love gears, plus im pretty good at it *pats self on back*.
i know they're changing a ton of shit in it, but i'm not mad, i dont really understand people who get super pissy that a sequel (or in this case a prequel) is changing stuff. if i wanted to keep playing gears 3 i'd be playing gears 3.
bioshock infinite is the game i'll be waiting for reviews to get. pure single player games like that i wanna know its good before investing in it, cus it doesnt have that "messing around in multiplayer" added value.
@clonedzero: I'm a little hesitant about BioShock Infinite, too. But that's purely because I'm much more cautious about how a console port is going to turn out. I was burned awfully hard by Far Cry 3's mess of a PS3 version... That's also the reason why I'm holding off on Tomb Raider, which otherwise looks pretty great imo.
And Gears! I love Gears, too! I'm not very good at the multiplayer, though, but that's admittedly because I played so damn little of it. That's also why I'm a little excited to dig into Judgment; it'll be the first Gears game I get at launch so I can hopefully jump in with a load of fellow new players. I'll be on a more even playing field, much more so than, say, jumping into Gears 3 competitive like a year in.
I'm good at leaving the God of War series at III. Especially since my fill of that type of game is coming from DmC and MGR.
Gears at least has awesome TPS mechanics behind it, and I'm at least a little curious to see what People Can Fly does with it
I'm very unlikely to get either. I never cared at all for Gears of War and i sold my 360 last year so that take care of that.
I'm most likely done with God of War at this point. I have all the games except for Ghost of Sparta and will pick that one up if i ever need a God of War fix.
If i do go back to playing my PS3 regularly before the PS4 launches i'm more interested in picking Killzone 3 and InFamous 2 than another God of War prequel.
Still with a big enough price drop who knows. The chance is closer to none than slim but never say never.
God of War: Ascension is 100% yes. Love this series too much to miss the release of a sequel. The MP probably isn't for me but as long as the campaign is more than a few hours I'm happy.
Gears of War: Judgement will be purchased as long as the changes aren't shitty enough to turn my friends away. Gears 3 kind of killed my hype so I'll probably not be too butthurt from any further changes made since the first 2 games.
I thought God of War got kinda boring by the middle of the second game and I think Gears 3 really rounded that story out - as for gameplay I also had enough of that specific cover based wall bouncing to last me a while and am not really interested in the competitive multiplayer side of it.
I WILL be picking up Tomb Raider though.
I'm a pretty big fan of the God of War series, the first game being one of my favorite games of all time. That being said, I haven't actually played any of the games past God of War 2 so I will probably buy Ascension once I catch up on the series.
Both games would take a back seat to Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider for me. That said I'm kinda interested in how Ascension rates. I know not a lot of people asked for a multiplayer God of War, but sometimes the best things are things we didn't think we wanted. It could be really cool, and if it works would be a really unique experience on consoles at least. Judgement seems like more of the same, but thats ok because Gears usually delivers.
I use to be a huge fan of both game series, for some reason though I'm feeling a lot of franchise fatigue on any game series that has gone beyond 3. It has to be psychological though cause I loved aC up until 3, I was bummed that they announced another Mass Effect even though I loved 3, and now with the GoWs I'm just feeling completely empty about them. I wouldn't have even given a second thought of them if another one wasn't coming out.
